Has the "Dual-Tuner" OTA USB Adapter received the firmware to enable both tuners yet?

    I have one of the older Single-Tuner adapters connected to my Hopper w/ Sling and have been using it for years. I understand now there's a new Dual-Tuner model available, but apparently it was released with only one tuner enabled and was supposed to get both enabled via firmware in May. Can anyone confirm if that update has gone out? If so, are both tuners working OK?

    I'd like to pick one up and have 2 tuners for OTA recordings, but I'm also leery about buying a "coming soon" product.

    Any info would be appreciated-

    If you have U235 on the H2 or U500 on the H3 the dual function will work.

    I have 2 single OTA tuner adapters (left over when I had a dual Hopper system). Only one is connected to my Hopper 3. Does anyone know if I can hook both up at the same time?
